The problem here is that you might have to go for a system restore in safe mode (in case you can't login normally for any reason), and as Avast services are of course off in safe mode, you can't deactivate the self defense module from there, and you're screwed. Only way out then is to uninstall Avast completely and reinstall once logged in normally.
Unbelievable screwed...

Won't you do anything regarding to this? ???

    Sorry didn`t mean to rub it in.....just that everytime I had a problem and with most people I have seen here complaining about Avast 5 they are told " Their is nothing wrong with Avast 5 it is on over 100 million computers....it must be something wrong with your computer" Just thought I would pass it on.....sorry Tech....for I think their are a lot of problems with Avast 5 that they are just blind to....
E8400, 8 GB DDR2, EVGA Gforce GT240 512 DDR5, 500 WD Black, 2 250 Sam spin, Windows 7 64 bit, Photoshop CS4, had Avast 5.....now back to Avast 4.8. This is your basic lean photo editing machine......

they're not blind on anything, they're aware of most issues reported on the forums, it's just their policy not to post very often and reply when they've fixed things >>> at next build release time ;)

Very often? Very often?
Sometimes, in some troubles, I feel completely without feedback. At least, the feedback we think we deserve it. I mean, sometimes, it's disappointing.

I don't know Tech, I feel some anger there ;D ... I mean I don't know if the frequency of Avast feedback has always been like it is today. I registered here two years ago but only started to post regularly in October last year, so I don't know if, beta testing periods excluded, there ever was more feedback from the devs here? that's just a question, I don't feel like browsing the old threads to find out, and you've been here for a while, so you can probably tell, was it ever different?

I'm not comparing the old times with the actual ones.
Just that I think the old guys, the ones who take a lot of time to help here, should be a little more feedback.
The existence of the Evangelist forum is not being enough imho.

I am on windows 7 / 32 have made  several system restores without any problem. Usually before install any software or drivers I create a restore point. If I dont like the software or have any problem  uninstall it and then make a system restore to the created point to clear of all traces of the unwanted software. As far I can remember I did not make a system restore to a previous point created by the system after avast 5.

I've tested again with self-defense module off. It worked.
Maybe an indication that users of avast should disable it before using System Restore?
Any confirmation of that Vlk?
